Windows Desktop Pets (eSheep) from the 1990s are back! #Windows #Desktop
Thanks to @dosnostalgic on Twitter posting about eSheep, an open source program by Adriano Petrucci which recreates the Windows Desktop Pets from the 1990s.
Can you remember eSheep, the lovely desktop sheep?
If you had a lot of them on the desktop… welcome to this page!
This project gives you the possibility to add a pet to your desktop.
This application is not a game, not an utility and not useful 😛 it simply shows you a pet on the screen. This pet can fall down up to the taskbar and is able to detect windows on your desktop. In this way, this pet is able to walk, run, etc around your working screen area (also on multiscreens).

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
